Sligo International Chamber Music Festival

28 April - 1 May 2017

 

Taking place in St Columba’s Church Drumcliffe and The Model Sligo over the May bank holiday weekend, Sligo International Chamber Music Festival is a highlight in the annual calendar of music events. Under Artistic Director Tim Vogler, the festival offers its loyal audience and new visitors alike the opportunity to experience high standards of programming through a fresh choice of artists performing alongside our internationally acclaimed ensemble-in-residence,the Vogler Quartet.

This year sees the return of festival guests Hugh Tinney and IB Hausmann who performed at the very first Vogler Spring Festival in 2000.

Following the success of our first youth programme last year, we continue our collaboration with key partners Music Generation Sligo and Sligo County Council to present Tuned In! Our unique and innovative youth programme is curated this year by Professor James Cavanagh from the Royal Irish Academy of Music.

We are delighted to announce a world premiere performance at Midday on May Day 2017. Gerald Barry’s Midday, for two string quartets, was written in 2016 in response to a co-commission by RTÉ and Sligo County Council and will be performed by The Vogler Quartet and RTÉ Contempo Quartet.

Tickets from €5-€25 from Sligo Chamber Music or Hawk's Well Theatre
